Example text

The outer edge of the tray had a thin frame that covered the edge or deckle. The vat-man would dip the tray in the vat, spread the pulp evenly, and give a shake in one direction and then the other in order that as much water would drop through as possible. He then passed the tray to the coucher, who removed the rim and turned the paper upside down onto the felt. Thus all paper has a felt side, and a wire side, the latter being slightly less smooth than the former. While the coucher flipped the sheet onto the felt, the vat-man would take a second tray and repeat the process.

Kastan (Oxford, 1999), 450–63. Paper 39 letter from the Earl of Pembroke to Sir Michael Hicks, dated ‘8 May’, requesting a six-month extension to a loan, was dated by a later hand as having been written on 8 May 1601 and so bound in the sequence of his correspondence. Hicks, however, was not knighted until the coronation in 1604, and the watermark indicates a date of 1607. There is another letter by Pembroke dated 14 November 1607, again deferring the loan. Textually, and historically, we might well infer that the letter is out of position, but the watermark is absolute evidence that this is so and that the two letters are related.
